As I've mentioned before, we take Wylla to the vet for acupuncture treatments in an attempt to stimulate normal esophageal motility.
She had an appointment on Friday, and we were so happy to see our dear friend Sarah was working that day. Sarah was one of Charlene's foster moms and she takes care of the girls when we leave town. She's awesome, and the girls love her.
Wylla always does remarkably well during her visits. Once the tiny needles are in, she has to sit still for about 15 minutes. She's always so patient and calm during the whole session. I'm always impressed, and so is our vet, with this kitten's ability to sit still.
Here she is with the needles in.
Look closely, and you can see some of the needles. There are a few placed down her back and neck. Also, a couple of tiny ones in her legs, and several along her belly.
After her sessions, you can tell always feels great. Her energy is always high, and she acts far more kittenish than she does most other days.
Doc was really impressed with Wylla's improvements since her last visit 6 weeks ago. She thought her coat seemed thinker and healthier and could feel a little more fat on her frame.
We, of course, were thrilled with that report!
